TOPEKA, Kan., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- A Topeka, Kan., couple who are the parents of newborn quadruplets say everything is going great.

Angela Decker gave birth to one girl and three boys Friday at Stormont-Vail Regional Health Center, The Topeka Capital-Journal reported Monday.

"It went really smoothly," Angela said. "Everyone is doing well."

Topeka's KSNT-TV said she and her husband Anthony named their first children Alyssa, Maddox, Logan and Jaden. Information about the infants' birth weights was not provided.

The couple recently moved to Kansas from Texas because they have family there; the couple recently closed on a new, larger home.

"Oh, it's unbelievable," the new father said. "Everything is just going so good. The hospital has been great."

The babies were delivered via Caesarean section and were being treated at the hospital's neo-natal intensive care unit.

The couple had names chosen for the children before they were born, but said they didn't confirm the names until they saw the babies.

"We just kind of decided for sure when we saw them," Angela said.

Hospital spokeswoman Nancy Burkhardt said the hospital would release additional information about the birth's later this week.
